I'm still in WA (about 5 months now) so Sharon just sent me a pic of our wisteria in full bloom .. good to see the 75 again too
Your wisteria is obviously 35km geographically closer to the equator than ours…… ours has started, but def not in full bloom yet.
Really not sure if this is the right thread, but inventive landscaping / sculpture……
That is huge!!
…….and clever !
Sometimes we get a lot of run off in our back yard. Approximately every 7 years. Looking forward to next year. Back in April '15...
I had to go back for a second look.
sorry…… the koel is louder and earlier
Oh and the Channel Bill Cuckoo
Yes, I could easily shoot him, if I could. Wish they didn't migrate South.
Cleaned the gutters and stormwater drains on the carport yesterday….down pipes discharge into two sumps, then onto an absorption trench in the back yard.
When I cleaned out the top sump I found a big frog happily sitting at the bottom, in the water. I thought he/she might have been trapped by the grate, so carefully placed him/her on the ground nearby….bushy, cool and damp.
Left the grate askew just in case it really wanted to be in the sump and sure enough, this morning when I went out to check, a little froggy face was peeping up out of the water….nice!
We call them “tennis frogs” ‘cause they sound like someone hitting a tennis ball …..there’s a tournament going on around here at the moment
Took a week later here, for the wisteria to get to full bloom……
31 years ago, I cut this full height gum tree hanging over the building, back to just a stump, and it sat as a stump ever since.
This year, it sprouted new growth!
Nice to see how nature can repair itself
Long story but I saved the newly born little guy from drowning and got very wet in the process. That was back in August '07 after the Hunter River had covered most of our property (think Pasha Bulker)
You'd be 2nd Dad Greg?
